I was at the grocery store tonight and found these Jalepeno's in the produce section. They are the biggest Jalepeno's I have ever seen in my life. They were just labeled jalepeno. I bought the only pack that had red jalepeno's in it so I could save some seed. When I got home I washed them and of course tasted them. They have that normal jalepeno taste. With almost no trace of heat. You can detect a slight back ground heat but its almost negligible. This is a very thick walled pepper, as thick as most medium sized bell peppers. They are loaded with huge seeds. I don't have any idea who bred this pepper or where it came from. However, they are far and away more advanced than the US when it comes to breeding these freak sweet peppers. I tried to show the peppers in such a way that you can get a feeling for how huge they are. They are next to a normal sized hot sauce bottle and the peppers are fatter than the bottle.
I washed and saved seed. It is in front of a fan now. The seeds are huge. All saved from the red jalepeno's. I will be sending seed to Ron. Probably a few hundred. Rick, if you want some of this seed let me know. I think it is a very practical variety of jalepeno, especially if you cannot tolerate the heat.
I split these jalepeno's. Then I cut them into strips after I cut the seed cores out of them. They are easy to work with.
I have them on the stove now in some vinegar and salt and a little sugar and of course, garlic. I heated the vinegar up then turned it off. They will go into a jar later and sit on the counter for a few days.
